We definitely will.  I'm working on a GraphQL framework in Squeak and
want its first project to be a hosting of the object returned by
SMSqueakMap default.

> Ah, I didn't; just a poorly written explanation I guess. I used the Create New Release first time, got the timeout and then thought that editing that new release (which had been created so far as the 'update' was concerned) might allow me to do a kinda-sort retry, Obviously, it didn't.

"Edit Release" only updates the Release entry, one of whose fields is
the downloadUrl, but it does not actually upload the file.  "Create
New Release" _does_ upload the contents of the lower pane as a .st
file, accessed by the #downloadUrl.

> So, let's try a new image and see what happens - SM updates the catalogue and does *not* have any of the new stuff included. That's probably good? Squeaksource is very slow to respond right now

squeaksource.com is also still hosted on a very old interpreter image.
After the 5.2 release I plan to work with Dave Lewis to get both
squeaksource.com and source.squeak.org both updated and running on the
same code base (which resides in the /ss repository).  Performance
will be improved and, hopefully, a solution to the scalability issues.
In the meantime, treating trunk with the respect it deserves by
committing only finished and tested code, is the best way to slow
further degradation.

> whether from Squeak or Safari, but has finally given me the mcz to load; loads ok. Create new release, fill in everything, save... completes without complaint. Update SM catalogue, includes new version. Excellent... except there's nothing on map.squeak.org so maybe something has messed up the image at squeakmap.

I will try to remember to make a video showing how to do it.  Once
learned, it really is quick and easy, and it works.
